It's a gorgeous day!

Yep, that's right! It's a lovely day here in Manchester! The sun is out for once! And it has inspired me to make a summery card!

So here it is... I have used the "shine" stamp from the Miss Anya - Rain, Snow, Shine stamp set.

I am entering this card into a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Blooming Charming (Use blooms and charms)
Anyone For Anya? - Don't Be A Square (Make a card that ISN'T square)
Allsorts Challenge - Birthdays (Make a birthday card)
TGF's Farm Fresh Friday - Colour Challenge (Use the colours given)
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Cute and Girly.

I have coloured her using Promarkers & Stickles. I have used my Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval nestabilities for the back of the easel card.
I have used a FlipFlop charm that I got from Nutcrafters, I thought this went with Anya quite well.
And for my sentiment I have used my "Sunshine kisses and Birthday wishes" stamp. I think it's so pretty! (Sorry it's a little blurry!).

Thanks for looking!
